Old Spectacles

How forlorn they are

the empty frames

tangled and forgotten

in a dusty drawer

no lenses to clarify

the shadowy blur

sightless and useless

bent and shapeless

without a face

to hold them in place

    1. Thank you. I was a bit lost after two days off writing over Christmas and couldn’t wait to get back to it. I got the idea from an article about a deserted cottage in Wales where everything is just as it was left and nobody knows who it belonged to. A photographer took pictures of it and that’s where my image and inspiration came from.
